Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Custom game splash screen crashes editor

Hi,

I have just tried to set a custom splash screen for the game when it loads, using the template splash.bmp in the engine content folder.

Once I set it to use the new image, the editor just crashed out. Upon loading the project again and clicking on project settings/platform/windows under settings, it crashes again.

The splash screen was just a standard bmp. If I right click and launch the .uproject, the new splash screen displays properly.

A quick google of the error and nothing pops up, but this is in the crash log:

Unknown exception - code 00000001 (first/second chance not available)

Assertion failed: false [File:D:\BuildFarm\buildmachine_++depot+UE4-Releases+4.6\Engine\Source\Developer\ImageWrapper\Private\IcnsImageWrapper.cpp] [Line: 47] ICNS uncompressing not supported on this platform.

Any ideas?

Hi there,

From the error description it sounds like the bmp format is not usable (at least not for a splash screen), so the first thing I would try is saving your image as a png or tga format and see if that makes any difference.

Let us know if that helps!

Hi,

That looks to be the cause. I had to delete the bmp file that it had cached to stop it crashing (from game/content/splash), then I saved out the bmp as 24bit instead of 16 and it all looks good and working now.

Thanks
